General strike called for March 29

Ignacio Fernández Toxo, Secretary of the 1.1 million member CCOO Trade Union today announced a nation-wide General Strike to be held on March 29 [M-29] this year.

Under the slogans "No to labour reform, defend public services" and "They want to finish off everyone's labor and social rights" the union is arguing that the Spanish government's response to the current economic crisis across Europe is too harsh on working people and is doing nothing for the unemployed either.
